File Counts - Multiple Directories - Looking for certain words

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I need a script that would search multiple directories for files that contain the words "performance" and then the word "experience" and return a count for each word.  

Then export the results to a CSV file that lists the results for directory 1 listing the performance files by name and then list the Experience files by name and then the total count for each type (i.e. Performance and Experience) and the same for directory 2 and so on......

The multiple directories would be listed in a DirList.txt file.
